Woman hit on head, choked in attack outside her caravan

POLICE are hunting an attacker who assaulted a Buderim woman outside her caravan home in the early hours of the morning.

The 52-year-old, who lives in Buderim Pines Caravan Park off Burnett St, told investigators the last thing she could remember of the incident was feeling someone wrap something around her neck.

Initial information suggested she was woken about 4.20am by banging outside her caravan.

She went outside to investigate and was hit on the back of the head with an object.

She fell to the ground and a police spokeswoman said that was when an item was wrapped around her neck.

"She told police it was the last thing she could remember," the police spokeswoman said.

The woman suffered minor injuries including bruising to her forearms, neck and head.

A Department of Community Safety spokesman confirmed an ambulance crew attended but wasn't required to take the woman to hospital.

"She said she had been choked," the spokesman said.

An employee working in the caravan park office yesterday told the Daily the woman was "healthy and well" after the incident.

"There are a lot of stories going around," the woman said.

Police were yesterday conducting interviews with nearby residents, who may have heard or seen something.

It is believed nothing was stolen from the caravan.

Police investigations are continuing.

Anyone with information that could help the police investigation should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go online to crimestoppers.com.au.

Information can be given anonymously.
